for unfair china trading practices. these are important things because the economy is the number one issue. >> you're trying to cram a lot of things in in these last five days. >> chris, let's get to it. we're going to be listening to the president later this hour. his campaign describing the speech as a closing argument to the voters. what tone does he need to strike? chris, does he really need to keep it respectful or hit back against mitt romney? >> you know, i don't think he necessarily needs to hit back. i personally think, no surprise, that it was a mistake for governor romney to come out as harsh as he did. when there's a national crisis, something as significant and so many people have been affected by hurricane sandy, the last thing people think about and talk about and want to focus on is politics. you have to be very careful about that. i think the president is going to come out, especially in light of what you've seen over the last few days, and strike a more positive, unifying tone. i think it's a smart strategy, especially coming down to the last days. let's be honest. i thin
the unemployment numbers saying the increase in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual stand still. but when we look at the jobs that have been added over the last six months, we see the steady rise, going in the right direction. unemployment dropping to under 8%, staying there. does that take out the economic message of mitt romney at the kneecaps? >> not really. one, we're not seeing the type of job growth that we need to be coming back. that number has to be way over 200,000 per month. but what it's -- and the other thing is, when you dig down into those nebs, you look at the income numbers. people are not feeling it. their incomes are not rising. so when you look at this from a political point of view, it's what people feel. what's their emotional pocketbook reaction? and the fact is right now people are still hurting. so, again, both candidates are going to spin everything. i think it's already baked in. i don't think it's going to affect it much. if it went over 8%, it could have. but at the end of the day, i think that their messages, what they're
the economy his number one campaign priority, and rightly so. this marks the very first time the paper has endorsed a republican since richard nixon. that was in 1972. joining me now is rick green of "the des moines register." it's great to have you with me. your paper did endorse mitt romney over the weekend. as i read from your blog and other reasons why that happened, you said the transparency was key to that selection. romney recently appeared in ohio claiming that jeep was moving production to china and has doubled-down with a new ad. i want to show everybody what that new ad looks like. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians building jeeps in china. >> chrysler issued a statement last week saying jeep has intention of shifting production of jeep models out of the north america to china. this president said this election is about trust. we have chrysler saying that romney was flat-out wrong, but he's still pushing this issue. do you believe that governor romney for the readers of "the register" is the candidate that should be trusted? >> it's great
of that. richest country in the history of the earth, largest economy in the world, and yet 47 million people need food stamps? so i believe that this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform andin a president t brings us together. now, i don't just talk about change, i actually have a plan to execute change and to make it happen. and there are five parts to that. and i hope you understand what they are. if you don't, let me just remind you. number one, i really do believe that we were given kind of an ace in the hole, and that is that someone learned how to drill in the earth, not just vertically but horizontally and then tap into pockets of oil and gas. as a result, we have huge new resources and natural gas and oil. so number one for me is take full advantage of our oil, our coal, our gas, our nuclear and our renewables. and that -- that creates, by the way, a lot of jobs in the energy states, of course, but it also creates a lot of jobs in states that use energy, because manufacturing of all kinds uses energy, some more than others. an
from your poll if i could put it up. president obama's 16-point lead with women on the economy. now a four-point disadvantage. how worried should democrats be? >> very worried. if this is actually going to bear out, it's a disaster for the democratic ticket. president obama underperforms with men, particularly white men at such a large degree that he needs to overperform with women. the obama campaign is really questioning these polling figures saying that the president is still well ahead with women. it's unclear. we are seeing that trend in basically all the polling across the board. that he's lost a lot of ground with women since the first debate. the president has to make up that deficit with women if he's going to win. there is no other way. his deficit with men is so large. >> lynn, for women that are still undid he sided, the handful of women who might be undecided, we heard the economic message from governor romney, heard the president's fiscal message, coupled with his stance on women's issues, as well. which is having the greater pull on those independent women voters righ
the economy and less worried about these issues surrounding contraception and stuff like that. i think obama really should be focusing on the larger issues of the economy and jobs. and that's what romney is doing. and the polls are reflecting that that is working. and that's why romney has pulled ahead in some of the national polls and is catching up in the battleground states. >> ari melber, i talked to a young voter in florida who voted for john mccain four years ago. he is actually voting for president obama this time around because of his views on foreign policy. he told me the one thing that has annoyed him most about this whole process from both sides is the smallness of the campaign, that they have not discussed big issues. has that struck you as well? >> i kind of disagree with the premise. i mean -- here is the problem. barack obama does do big things. he passed the biggest domestic health care reform in 50 years. he caught osama bin laden. he bailed out the auto companies and refurbished them. i think there is a lot of big things going on. the rhetoric has been small at tiles, but
will sandy have on the u.s. economy. lots to talk about here because not only is there the damage to consider but the business disruption that it has created throughout the northeast. joining me is jared bernstein former chief economist for vice president joe biden, also an msnbc contributor. jared, as we look over these estimates and they're really rough now in the very beginning. >> very rough. >> sandy could cost when it's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to rebuild it. that actually adds to gross domestic product. it subtracts from the net but adds to the growth. >>
